    9PM / £5


    The Strathern brothers, Owen 20 (vocals / Bass) and Enda 19 (Guitar) met Stephen Leacock 19 (Drums) at school in Magherafelt, South Derry, N.Ireland. The last 6 months has seen them become the most exciting musical prospect to come out of N. Ireland in some years, with industry executives scrambling for their signatures, and them sharing stages across the UK with many of their favourite bands, including The Wombats, One Night Only, Pigeon Detectives and the Enemy as well as playing at the Oxegen, Belsonic and Reading / Leeds Festivals.

    General Fiasco have been enjoying early support from BBC Radio 1, recently recording a live session at the famous Maida Vale studios and getting invited to play at the 2008 Reading & Leeds festival as part of the BBC introducing line up. Their appearance at Reading was picked by the NME as one of “the ten hopes for the near future.”

    A seven inch single through the hip London based label “Another Music = Another Kitchen” and download of the live favourite “Rebel Get By” is scheduled for November 10th release. Their festive return to Belfast’s Stiff Kitten on December 26th is likely to be one of the highlights of their now incredibly busy touring schedule.

    Bangor based hopefuls Two Door Cinema Club provide support on the night, another act who are currently captivating the interests of UK music industry executives, and are set to head out for the debut UK tour in the coming months.

    why can't stiff kitten put on more than 2 bands?
  4. avatar Joeplaysthedrums
    Stiff Kitten regularly put on more than 2 bands on gig nights. In fact, the majority of local band nights this year have had 3 bands per bill.

    On this occasion, there is a club night to take into account afterwards, so any more than 2 bands would not make sense logistically.

    yeah i just meant for this night, that's fair enough, still a quality line up.
